WEC260: Florida's Introduced Birds: House Sparrow (Passer domesticus)

Figure 5. Carolina Chickadees (Poecile carolinensis) are found throughout much of the southeastern United States (except central/south Florida), and may be confused with male House Sparrows. But they can easily be identified by their black-capped heads and the lack of reddish-brown coloration on their heads and backs.
